LIMERICK INANIMATE I.
There once was a pencil named Roger,
Oft described as a really old codger.
He fell with a crack!
Broke he his lead back!
'Twas I, Ben Pen, his lodger!
There once was a balloon named Muldoon,
Who thought he could fly to the moon.
The helium he packed,
Fell from his sack!
Now he sounds like an utter buffoon.
There once was an umbrella named John,
And we really didn't get on.
He hated the rain!
Said I was vain!
And now I'm soaked, so thanks for that, John!
